Dr. Elie Schochet, best known for his Happy Hiney series at the Pride Center, has moved his practice back to Fort Lauderdale.
Schochet was forced to leave the area when he left Holy Cross hospital and decided to open a private practice.
“So, I really liked the hospital. I think it’s a wonderful hospital for the community, but the way they were running my office, they just weren’t letting me sort of build the kind of center I wanted to build,” he said. “So I quit.”
He opened up an office in Aventura until he was able to move his new practice back to the Fort Lauderdale area.
“When I opened there I knew the plan was always to get back here right away,” he said.
Most of his surgeries will now take place at Holy Cross.
